Metastasis from breast cancer to the pituitary gland causing hyponatriaemia
Breast cancer is the most common cancer in Danish women. Pituitary metastases are rare events.

A transsphenoidal resection was performed to rescue her vision and pathology confirmed metastasis from a breast invasive ductal adenocarcinoma.
